Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Message Board

Cancer: Cervical & Ovarian Board Index

Hi Sally - sorry to hear about your results. The waiting is no fun. I was in the same spot you are a few months ago, and have researched the heck out of atypical glandular cells. They are more rare than the normal atypical squamous results most women get, and most gyns have never dealt with them. They certainly need to be treated differently than the usual atypical cells found on a pap - required testing is colposcopy, ECC and endometrial biopsy if you're over 35. There is no wait and see, or re-test in 6 months recommendation with this one. So I'm glad to see you had a colposcopy and endometrial biopsy (ouch!) - but did you also have an ECC done? The endocervix is where those pesky buggers like to hang out mostly.

If you have any questions, or just need to vent, please let me know. I'm sure you've done your research - AGC is a scary result. My pap came back AGC, ASC-US and postitive for high risk HPV, initial biopsies came back with adenocarcinoma in-situ, and my follow-up cone biopsy came back with stage 1B1 adenosquamous carcinoma. I'm an odd one and have the rare result of both adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma. I'm having a radical hysterectomy next week, plus having my pelvic lymph nodes removed.

The glandular stuff is nothing to mess around with - I went from normal paps my entire life (I'm 39), with my last one being in 2011 to one year later having invasive cancer. This stuff just doesn't follow the normal pattern that most cervical abnormalities do. So I am so glad you are having more tests done! Please come back and let us know how they turn out, and let me/us know if you have any questions or just someone to talk to.
